So I want to set up a web site to have a place where I can post my resume, reel, and photo portfolio. I was wondering what sites some other people use and what sort of price range I should be looking at. Also any stylistic advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I use Host Monster for my site hosting/domain and I think it runs me about $100/yr. I like it, it works for me. I had a friend do the design on the site, this time 'round, which I tweak in Dreamweaver.

Thanks a lot for the help Adrian. I will look into that! One of my buddies has been showing me a few tricks on dreamweaver so I am hoping that he will help me start up a web site and I could do small additions whenever I have new material.

Dreamweaver is very nice if you just want to keep it simple; which is always best. Once you get a "template," for the site up you can copy and paste the code to new pages ect, or just "edit" pages similarly to as they were word documents. There is some know-how to go along with it, but answers for many coding questions are just a google away.

I use fatcow.com for hosting and if you google cheapest web hosts and follow a fatcow link you can get it for something like $44/yr unlimited bandwidth and space, unlimited email accounts, one domain name included, and easy installation of thingslike joomla and wordpress. I have had it for 3 years and have had less than a day downtime, probably less than an hour. If you go with them.. Refer me! :)

Stylistic advice; keep it simple. Avoid flash if possible (many industry people may have and iPad or something...) and have your reel on the first page if you can.

I use fatcow as well and it has been the cheapest and easiest I have found. Personally I built my website in Adobe Illustrator (not the best way but the way I understand), but I have heard many good things about WordPress and Joomla which are open source (free) and pretty easy to use.

You might want to try a portfolio page on FlickFire, it's pretty, does the job, and also helps with networking.
